College men's basketball: USF Bulls vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights

USF men vs. Rutgers

When/where: Noon, Tampa Bay Times Forum, Tampa

TV/radio: BHSN; 1250-AM

Records: USF 7-7, 0-1 Big East; Rutgers 8-5, 0-0

Notable: If there were any chance of USF taking the Scarlet Knights lightly, that ended with a double-overtime win against No. 10 Florida. Rutgers is led by freshman G Eli Carter, averaging 12.8 points, with 6-foot-8 Lithuanian Gilvydas Biruta close behind at 11.0. USF is getting solid 3-point shooting from G Jawanza Poland (41.7 percent) and F Toarlyn Fitzpatrick (42.9 percent). It's the kind of home Big East game the Bulls need to win if they're going to be relevant in the conference this season.
